Publisher's Summary

It's not easy being the only human at the Community of Species Government - and especially not when you're the rescue case. Two years ago, I was planning to go to college, have a wild time, then settle into a normal life. Instead, I was kidnapped, spent months being a test subject, was in hiding for nearly a year, and then found out that my whole existence is a science experiment conducted by the bad guys. It's definitely time to reassess.

My rescuers at CSG have been awesome...mostly. They gave me a job, a home, and a support network. But the whole demons, vampires, shifters thing is not easy to get used to. Especially when one particular vampire makes me want to take up stake sharpening for a hobby.

The thing is, teenage mentality or not, Andrew is a fierce protector. With the bad guys still on the loose, I need someone like that on my side. Plus, did I mention that he's not hard to look at?

As we race to find my former captor before he can find me, life takes another twist and upends my world all over again. This time, though, I'm ready - after all, I've got an 800-year-old vampire at my back. What could possibly go wrong?

Patchy and not as fun as the first book

In Demons Do It Better, Noah was rescued from a malevolent warlock / mad scientist. Here he settles into life at the Community of Species Government offices where he falls for ancient vampire, Andrew. DDIB was hilariously good, this book not so much. There’s lot of explaining and world building but not a lot happens for the first half of the book and Noah seemed pretty similar to Sam in DDIB. I didn’t really ‘feel’ the romance between Noah and Andrew, it’s overshadowed by the world building and they went from enemies to lovers very suddenly. There’s some nice action in the second half of the book and I liked Noah’s magical progress, but the story ends abruptly, it’s almost a cliffhanger. Audio narrator, Joel Leslie sparkles, switching accents on a dime. He seems to have chosen different accents for different species, with French (?) accents for the vampires.

Worth the credit

Really enjoyed the storyline and of course the excellent narration from Joel takes it to another level. Definitely worth the credit, can highly recommend and I am usually not a fan of paranormal.

Just Buy This Book!

Look, I am not even into the fantasy/sci-fi genre, but this book is freaking awesome! Hilariously laugh out loud funny, super sexy, and perfectly narrated. Can’t wait for more of this series!

I love this series

I love visiting this world and all its people. It's so intriguing and well written, it will keep you on the edge of your seat. A modern day human and an 800 year old vampire - hilarity and drama ensues. AND Joel Leslie is a master of accents and innuendo. He grabs the story and takes it into the atmosphere. He is a joy to listen to.

HFN

I don’t like cliffhanger books, but I just figured out I don’t like “happy for now” either.
Cool and twisted story, this really is a series you have to have all. And in order …
The book was good and somewhat interesting, though it felt like it got wrapped up a little too abruptly.
Great narrator, enjoyable performance.

Fun fantasy with feisty banter and action

I love this series. It’s an interesting take on supernatural beings. Masters does a fantastic job blending a great narrative with snappy banter, funny and engaging characters and the occasional time where she seamlessly asks the reader things directly. It is a delightful way of writing that I find well done and refreshing. The story is interesting and there is a surprise ending. Can’t wait for more. Joel Leslie Knocks this one out of the park! Spot on accents, vocal drama building, tempo, pitch, and pauses all placed exactly where they need to be in order to fully envelop the listener in an amazing listening experience. I loved these characters- I laughed throughout the story. Kudos!!!

A Good Second in the Series

The book didn't get off to as strong if a start as the last one did. It just felt slow. Noah is a very different character than Sam was, and the banter between him and Andrew was clever, but not always my thing. Then the pace picked up, the overarching storyline came back into play, and the book has a satisfying HFN. That said, I wish I'd waited until the next book was out. This is very definitely a middle child. There a lot of question unanswered.

Gotta love Noah & Andrew

Andrew and Noah were such a treat to read about. Noah was so emo in this and I loved it! While he did go through a traumatic experience he tried not to let it define him. He went about his life as normal as he could. Watching him interact with the team was gold. It was especially great to see how he tried to not upset Sam because he was afraid of Gideon. Learning about the new gift that Noah had was pretty cool. It added a new element to the story and showed that the team didn't know all they did about the old days.
Andrew, was such a prankster. I can't say I wouldn't be like him also, if I lived as long as he did. Seeing him tease/torture Noah was so funny. I'm glad to know that he did it mostly to distract him from sad thoughts. Watching him fight his attraction to Noah was enjoyable. Seeing that he isn't one to deny hisself, it was honorable of him to try to hold off. He wanted to give Noah time to emotionally heal before he tried anything.
This volume showed us new powers and creatures set in this world. We get to see these two dance around each other, while trying to capture the bad guy from the previous volume. I totally recommend it

entertaining

Would I listen to it again: yes ✔
Did the story keep me engaged: yes ✔
Was I invested in the characters: yes ✔

📖 Story comment: Good continuation of the series. The world building continues to grow, the characters are entertaining and the plot was interesting.

🎧 Narrator comment: Joel Leslie is a master voice actor and suits the personalities of these characters. He has good cadence, inflections and intonations and it's easy to distinguish all the characters from each other. For the first time ever though, there were times I needed to slow the narration down a smidge for me to keep up with the dialogue - this is only a minor observation though and not enough to affect my overall enjoyment of the story.

------
📌 Where does it fall on my personal scale? 7
• 1 not my thing • 2 didn't like the narration • 3 didn't keep my attention • 4 was good, but once was enough • 5 enjoyed it • 6 will listen again if i'm in the mood for the narrator • 7 goes on the "re-listen" list • 8 kept me up past bed-time • 9 recommended to family/friends • 10 own it in multiple formats • 11 keep a copy with me at all times

The Love continues...

As soon as I finished the first book in the series (Demons do it better), which I loved...I purchased this audio book the day it came out. The love continues. Noah, the crass, tough-as-nails human and Andrew the old smart-assed vampire are meant for one another. The love story and the intrigue of the story wraps you in and you venture down the rabbit hole with them. It was an awesome listen and I cannot wait until the next book comes out...in fact, I am sure I will listen to both again and perhaps, again. OMG...love the story!

Awesome

The voices Joel came up with the characters in The first book were so on point for these characters. His talent shows through in how he’s able to continually maintain Andrews accent. A brilliant book brilliantly narrated.

Brilliant!!


Louisa Masters is brilliant at this genre. The storyline is fluid from Demons Do It Better as well as the characters.

I absolutely loved it as much as the first - Andrew and Noah are such a great fit, especially the snark and humour.

Even ‘The World Of Wangs’ got another mention - so hysterically funny 😆

Joel Leslie is superb as usual 😁

Really can’t wait to hear what happens next!!

Definitely worth 5🌟’s
